This book has not one, but two amazing Christmas novellas by Colleen Coble in it. The first, All is Calm follows Lauren Everman’s story. Lauren is a witness to a murder, and subsequently has become the main suspect. She goes back to Bluebird Ranch, a place she went as a foster child, to hide out. Brendan Waddell, a Marine who worked for the Special Ops Intel, sees beneath the surface, and decides to see if he can help her out. Will he be able to figure out what happened that night, and clear Lauren’s name?
The second novella, All is Bright, is the story of Delilah Carter. Delilah is planning her friend’s wedding when she is run off the road in an obvious attempt on her life. Sheriff Tom Bourne is determined to protect Delilah and uncover who might have it in for her, even if that means digging up the past.
I love Colleen Coble’s work, and these novellas were no disappointment. The story and characters were well developed. I loved the suspense and romance in both novellas. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen, very captivating. I highly recommend both stories, and with Christmas coming up, these would make perfect gifts!
